Seattle and Houston continue their 4 game weekend series and it’s Houston who tries to bounce back here.
The Mariners took the series opener 6-3, as they keep on rolling along.
The Mariners keep on winning and are doing it in impressive fashion. Seattle took the series opener with the Astros 6-3 behind a late offensive surge.
Seattle got 2 in the 7th and 3 in the 9th to propel themselves, but the most encouraging sign had to be starting pitcher Wade Miley. He is going to play a crucial part in this Mariners pitching staff and he turned in a 6.0 inning effort, allowing 5 hits and 2 runs while striking out 5.
Trying to follow that up, the Mariners will send out the impressive Taijuan Walker. Walkers has gone 2-1 on the season with an ERA that sits at just 1.80. He’s earned wins in 2 of his last 3 games, but fell in his last start to Kansas City.
The Royals had just 2 earned runs on him, as he was the tough luck loser in a 4-1 game. Walker has been one of the most impressive pitchers this season for Seattle and will look to continue that trend.
The Astros have to win series like this.
Houston has dug themselves quite the hole already, as they are 10-19 on the season, 7.5 games behind the Mariners. The Astros were a popular pick to win this years World Series, but the team has struggled a lot. The Astros have played much better at home than the road, going 6-7, while averaging 4.77 runs on the season.
Houston will send out RH Doug Fister. The Astros certainly need him this season, as he is just 2-3 with a 4.60 ERA this year. Fister was near flawless in his last start against Oakland, going 6.2 innings of work while allowing just 1 run on 7 hits. The win got Fister back in the W column after losing 3 straight games.
Fister got the loss against Seattle after allowing just 3 runs in 6.0 innings of work 2 starts ago.
